AN American legal team fighting for Bougainville people in a major compensation case against Bougainville Copper Ltd (owned by Rio Tinto) will go to Papua New Guinea to see the Prime Minister Sir Michael Somare and President James Tanis. The visit comes after the peoples’ case against BCL (Rio Tinto) was revived by a decision in an American court before Christmas. The case resulted in a judge reversing a previous decision in favour of BCL (Rio Tinto) and sending the 20-year-old case back to the District Court in California for a fresh hearing.  See
